AFL seeks project manager for Marvel Stadium upgrade

AFL seeks project manager for Marvel Stadium upgrade
September 20, 2018

The AFL is seeking Expressions of Interest (EOI) from the market for the provision of project management services to assist it with planned upgrades to Melbourne's Marvel Stadium.

The project proposes a major upgrade and refurbishment of the stadium and surrounding concourse, while keeping the stadium operational for the maximum amount of time.

It includes the creation of more vibrant connectivity to and around the stadium from the adjacent Southern Cross Station and the Melbourne CBD.

It will also cover a major expansion of the eastern (city side) wing of the Stadium, a reimagining of the south end of the Stadium including the creation of a new, vibrant public space - all combined with a variety of in-stadium improvements and upgrades to service all sectors of the community.

The budget for the project is currently set at $225 million, which, as announced in April 2018, is to be funded by the Victorian Government.
